Reno / Sparks, NV

Reno, Sparks, Sun Valley, Verdi, Spanish Springs, Pyramid

The “Biggest Little City” is growing up and out with stylish new cultural and shopping venues in addition to its renowned hotel, casino, and entertainment and dining experiences.

The airline hub of the High Sierra with Reno-Tahoe International Airport, Reno and Sparks add the metropolitan edge to the High Sierra golf destination. And, as you would infer from the 1940’s nickname you can still have the big city benefits without most of the accompanying hassles. However, the little city part is sprawling with growth and you’ll find many new shopping, cultural and recreation activities. And, downtown is as vibrant as ever with renovations, new additions and cultural proclivity. Add a day or two to your stay if you want to take in all of the Reno/Sparks experience.
